A railway locomotive making its way through Kent is set to cause motorists delays on Monday.
The Class 92 electric engine, which is 21 metres (70ft) long and weighs 126 tonnes, will arrive in Folkestone at the Eurotunnel terminal during the afternoon before joining the M20 and heading towards London.
The exact time is unknown due to the checks that will need to be made by staff at Eurotunnel.
It will only take up one lane, but the abnormal load is likely to cause delays because it is subjected to a 20mph speed limit.
After passing Ashford, the loco will then proceed to the M26 and M25 before joining the M1 to arrive at its destination in Loughborough near Leicester.
Last December, an electricity transformer made the slow crawl along the motorway to its new home in Sellindge.
That turned out to be a highly organised logistical operation that led to long delays for motorists.
